The painting shown is titled Cowichan River Trail, this part of the trail is within the Cowichan River Provincial Park. The foot path extends approximately 20 km along the river with spectacular views over looking the water.
While at some locations you walk through a magical mixed forest at river level…at others large cedar and fir trees stand tall along the trail, rays of sun catch and highlight mosses and lichen on the sweeping branches. Sword ferns line the trail adding to the richness of the colours.
Along the main foot path other less used trails lead off to the river bank while others take you deeper in to the forest to usually loop back again. Still other paths take you to an abandoned rail right of way, now popular for further exploring by walking, biking, or horseback. While walking some of these trails in spring we have enjoyed many wild flowers and occasionally honoured with the presence of river otters, squirrels, bears, elk and a variety of birds. The call of the raven passing over head completes the pleasure of being in the forest.
